These healthy meal prep recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are super easy to make and so delicious. They’ll make your life SO much easier! I’ll always have a soft spot for something that takes a bit more time and effort (like slow-simmered soups or stews, or a fancy dessert), but most days we’re eating meals that are fairly straight-forward and simple.

Thinly sliced beef gets dredged in a little bit of arrowroot (or cornstarch, if you’re not paleo/don’t have it), and a super-quick sear in the pan. Paired with tender, delicious broccolini (or broccoli), and a three-ingredient sauce, the flavor combination is magic. I love when I can coax as much flavor as possible out of a short ingredient list. Now, here’s where it get’s tricky and you’ll need to pull out your multi-tasking skills. While the chicken and rice are cooking, go ahead and steam the broccoli. You can do this on the stove-top in a pot of boiling water or in the microwave. Now all that’s left is to cut the chicken, spoon out the rice and assemble the meal prep bowls. The beef stays tender, the broccolini is cooked just enough, and the savory sauce ties everything together.
